LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska coach Doc Sadler has suspended guard Eshaunte Jones and forward Quincy Hankins-Cole for Wednesday night's game at Iowa State.

Sadler said Tuesday that Hankins-Cole and Jones would not travel to Ames, Iowa, because they didn't meet "certain academic requirements." Sadler did not elaborate.

Jones missed Saturday's game against Missouri because of what Sadler said was illness. He has averaged 6.4 points, 1.7 rebounds and 17 minutes in 25 games. Hankins-Cole has averaged 3.5 points, 1.6 rebounds and 14.7 minutes in 22 games.
